A rude man insults a customer who has Down syndrome. The man complains that the customer takes too long to order and that the waitress should pay more attention to him. How will people react?
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
1 Corinthians 13:4
PRAYER FOR DOWN SYNDROME
O Holy St. Robert Bellarmine, I pray for your loving intercession for the needs of those with Down syndrome.
May you be at the side of every mother with child, that she will have the faith to overcome worldly thoughts and fears that could distract her from recognizing the precious gift of life growing within her.
May you be at the side of the parents, families, friends, teachers, and caregivers that they will have the grace to know the Lord’s merciful hand is guiding them through life’s joys and struggles. May they place their hope and complete trust in Jesus.
St. Robert Bellarmine, help me to keep my eyes open for the opportunity to show my love like Jesus and not to let fear of the unknown prevent me from doing the Divine Will. I ask you to entrust these intentions to the Most Blessed Virgin Mary that she may place them before the altar of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. Amen
